The EU’s AI Act was adopted on 21 May 2024. It was published in the OJEU on 12 July and will come into force on 01 August.


The AI Act will be fully applicable two years after entry into force. However, the ban on AI systems that pose unacceptable risks, for example, will apply six months after entry into force.

In the meantime, the AI Office is tasked with establishing a center of AI expertise across the EU. According to the Commission, it will play a key role in implementing the AI Act - especially for general-purpose AI (‘GPAI’) - fostering the development and use of trustworthy AI and international cooperation.

As the foundation for a single European AI governance system, reportedly the AI Office will also have a role in monitoring and approving the final Codes of Practice for GPAI providers to demonstrate compliance with the AI Act.

Join Killian Gross for the first in-person / webinar 'Chatham House rule' discussion (incl. Q&As) about the responsibilities of the new AI Office, including his Unit’s role in providing regulatory coordination and guidance to facilitate the uniform implementation of the AI Act across the EU.
